"Where Are the Masses?" is a Palestinian song that dates to the
seventies. Analysts of Arab politics, both military and civilian, are
in consensus that this song is a trigger to activate Palestinians en
masse, a call for them to go out and confront Israel. This "call to
arms" was broadcast this morning on PA TV: the song was played as the
screen boasted scenes of mass street violence.
This might be seen as an effort by Arafat to get the crowds out into
the streets, in an attempt to change the image of his terrorist war
to that of a popular uprising.
The following are the words of the song:
“Where are the masses?
Where is the Arab nation?
Where is the Arab rage?
Where is the Arab blood?
Where is the Arab honor?”
Allah is with us, He is stronger than the Zionists
Call upon the armies, for my voice has not reached them.
We are the possessors of the Rights, We are to Revolution, and they
are infidel possessors of the elephant
We are the generation of the Rights, generation of the revolution,
Allah’s flock of Attack Birds
Therefore thrust upon them stones, stones from Hell!"
